Lyrics

A Day On

Written By: Batson, Keith

MY WORK LOAD’S PILING UP HIGH
AND IT’S BRINGING ME DOWN LOW
THE BOSS IS ON MY CASE I’M ABOUT TO BREAK
I’VE HAD ALL I CAN TAKE
SOMETIMES I’D LIKE TO TELL HIM WHERE TO GO

I NEED A DAY ON THE LAKE ON A PONTOON BOAT
WITH MY BABY RIGHT BESIDE ME ON AN INNER TUBE FLOAT
OUT ON THE WATER GETTING HIGH ON THE TENNESSEE SUN
I NEED A DAY WITH MY MIND ON NOTHING BUT FUN
AND A BLUE EYED ANGEL HANGING’ ON MY ARM
I CAN’T SAY I COULDN’T USE A DAY OFF
BUT I NEED A DAY ON

STUCK IN EVENING TRAFFIC ONCE AGAIN
I JUST WISH I WAS HOME
A TRUCK MADE ME SWERVE I GOT SHOT THE BIRD
I CAN’T BELIEVE THE NERVE
AND TO TOP IT OFF MY SUPPERS GETTING COLD

I NEED A DAY ON A DRIVE ON A TWO LANE ROAD
WITH MY FAVORITE SONG ON THE RADIO
PASSING LITTLE COUNTRY TOWNS ROLLING ON MY WAY
I NEED A DAY ON ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH
ON A TRAIL HORSE ON AN EARLY MORNING RIDE
I CAN’T SAY I COULDN’T USE A DAY OFF
BUT I NEED A DAY ON

[LEAD]

I NEED A DAY ON THE LAKE ON A PONTOON BOAT
WITH MY BABY RIGHT BESIDE ME ON AN INNER TUBE FLOAT
OUT ON THE WATER GETTING HIGH ON THE TENNESSEE SUN
I NEED A DAY WITH MY MIND ON NOTHING BUT FUN
AND A BLUE EYED ANGEL HANGING’ ON MY ARM
I CAN’T SAY I COULDN’T USE A DAY OFF
NO I CAN’T SAY I COULDN’T USE A DAY OFF…
BUT I NEED A DAY ON
I NEED A DAY ON
